Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Europe 72 Tracklisting

Yeah, but get this, dude. If you go to official site of the Grateful Dead, the setlist they have for the Rheinhalle show on the site does NOT match the order of songs on the new Europe '72 release. You'd think they'd know what the setlist is, wrong in the past or not, after just releasing this monster. So that makes 4 sources that say the order of that show is wrong on the disc, including the official Dead site.

That's just one example. The site and other places has the second set starting with He's Gone, while the release says Dark Star started the second set. No offense to you (I don't know you) but you'd think you'd find some definitive proof SOMEWHERE. In other words, I'm not ready to take your word for it. Sorry, but only if you are offended, I guess. LOL.

I mean you have TONS of Dead releases that mix up the song order, sometimes to ridiculous degrees. What I like to do is archive my stuff; and when I do, I put everything back in the correct order...unshuffle what they've shuffled, if you will. My favorite is when they stick part of one show in the middle of another and then change the order of the first show on top of that. Confuses me.

Anyway, I hope I haven't fixed what wasn't broken before (I don't think so). But I want to get these songs in the right order if they are not when I archive.
